towing a John Deere 450 B

Hey guys hows it going?

I was just wondering if any one know the weight of a JOHN DEERE 450 B?

My dad is looking into buying one, I dont have a pic of the one he is thinking about getting yet, but i am going to go by there this week and take some pics of it and the trailer.


Im just wondering if my hitch can handle pulling a tractor that size? Its a shelton class five.





*****here is a pic of one that i got off of ebay for now till i get pics of the actual one he is looking at getting......


Click for pic of tractor off of ebay

Re: towing a John Deere 450 B

I don't know, but from looking at the pic I would guess 11-12k.

Re: towing a John Deere 450 B

That's a fairly heavy machine, looking at it I'd say at least 10K and maybe quite a bit more.

Ok, I had a whole reply typed up and then re-read your post and had to delete it all.

Absolutely DO NOT try and drag that anywhere on a bumper pull trailer. People may tell you that "It'll be ok" and all of that, and I suppose you *might* make it wherever you are going without killing anyone, but it is still a bad idea.

That machine will outweigh your truck by at least 2000 lbs and that is far too much weight to hang off of the back of a pickup truck. Either get a good heavy gooseneck trailer or get a bigger truck with a pintle hitch trailer meant to carry that kind of weight.

They weight approximately 16,700lbs with the loader!

Go here and click on the 450B link.

Been looking at a new Deere so Deere.com is my home away from home.

Re: towing a John Deere 450 B

With the hoe on there, you are going to be easily at 18k plus the trailer.

Re: towing a John Deere 450 B

Looks like trailer and tractor will need some maintaining. Good luck

Re: towing a John Deere 450 B

Forget that deal. Spend your money up front for working equipment. Save the restoration projects for your retirement years!

Re: towing a John Deere 450 B

Take it from someone that has been working on heavy equipment since 94. If you are buying this to piddle with and you can work on it yourself then it will be fine. But if you plan to make a living with this equipment or will have to pay someone to do it for you it will cost you atleast 60hr plus mileage and service call fees. Thats if you can find someone to do it. There is a real shortage of heavy equipment mechanics. JJ
